Linoleum vs. Vinyl Product by:

Before making a decision on what to use for your Flooring, let's make a comparative review on the two flooring types, Linoleum and Vinyl.

People believed that Vinyl is an upgraded version of Linoleum since it took over the market during 1950s. But this is not really true, they may have similar properties but they are distinct to each other.

Both flooring types are very Durable, soft to the foot, sound insulating and easy to clean, they also comes in a wide variety of colours and design. The difference between Linoleum Vs. Vinyl is that linoleum comes from purely natural product while the latter is made from a synthetic material mainly from petroleum.

Health and Eco-friendliness considered Linoleum works best because it is made from ground flax seeds and mixed in with other plant materials, 100% Biodegradable and sustainable ideal for people with allergenic conditions. Linoleum is naturally anti-static so dirt, dust and other small particles doesn't stick on to it.

Vinyl, on the other hand, having made from synthetic petroleum by-products is as durable as Linoleum. It is extremely safe from staining, denting, scratching and fading from sun exposure.
 
 However, the fact that Vinyl uses petroleum products, it is not only using non-renewable energy sources during its production but also releases pollutants to the environment.

Think before you choose. All natural and renewable sources are good for us.
